Van Nuys Awning Co.® — More Than 100 Years Of Service!
Van Nuys Awning Co.® started back in 1918 with a small business entrepreneur. One hundred years later and four generations later, Van Nuys Awning Co.® is still making custom canvas coverings for our residential, commercial, and industrial clients.
Thriving as one of California’s largest manufacturers of residential and commercial awnings, patio umbrellas and cushions, marine canvas products, industrial canvas products, and specialty metal products. You will find unsurpassed quality, premier service, and a friendly, knowledgeable staff to assist you. With IFAI-Certified Master Fabric Craftsmen in awning design and manufacturing on staff, we perform magic with canvas.
Our awning company has always been a true family business. In 1953, we worked in a 1,800 square feet facility with one employee — Mom Powell did the books, Dad Powell did the selling, son, Jimmie Powell ran the shop and son, and Don Powell installed the awnings.
In the early 60s, Van Nuys Awning Co.® moved to a larger facility in downtown Van Nuys, with 11,000 square feet, eight employees, and the Powell family. Our reputation for quality and service grew and so did we as our customers recommended us to friends and associates.
In the mid-70s, our family business built and moved into our present facility, a 20,000 square foot factory showroom located at 5661 Sepulveda Blvd., Van Nuys, CA. Today, the Powell family and its 45 employees still stress the high quality and customer service that has made Van Nuys Awning Co.® one of the nations most highly respected awning companies.
Van Nuys Awning Co.® is a charter member of both WCPA-Western Canvas Products Association, PAMA-Professional Awning Manufacturers Association, and the IFAI-Industrial Fabrics Association International. Our owners have served on the Board of Directors of both organizations numerous times. These associations establish standards and guidelines for the awning, canopy, and custom canvas industry. We have been members of IFAI since 1958.
We take tremendous pride in being Van Nuys’ go-to awning company and in offering unbeatable value. We work with top architects, designers, construction companies, as well as many movie studios, and amusement parks. We can do everything from a simple front door awning to a complex commercial project with a variety of custom commercial awnings and canopies.
